Coming soon.....

My oldest daughter Corie had a good suggestion last week. When I mentioned that I was going to become more proactive in my fight against neuroblastoma she shared an idea with me. When we get back from New York I will be ordering "Cody's Crew" silicone bracelets. The same type bracelets that were started by Lance Armstrong. I haven't figured the whole plan yet but I will giving all profits to benefit neuroblastoma research.

Now for my second iron in the fire. Many of you may know that I dabble in drawing. I've had a little formal training when I lived in Pensacola FL. I stopped for a few years because the kids were small and it's hard to leave half finished work laying around with little ones. Well I have had a renewed inspiration to start drawing again. I have decided to do a 4 or 5 drawing set of Pirates. I've just about finished my second drawing already. It's easy to draw when you have inspiration. To me, drawing must be kinda like writing songs or books is for writers. When I get the time I will take the drawings up to get digital copies made so I can share them with everyone.

I'll write more later...

As promised here are a couple of pictures from this morning.



Cody wearing his pirate skull cap, complements of "Kirk", my buddy from Runnersworld. Thanks, Kirk..... Cody loves your gifts...

Hey Dad, I was thinking if you do get the bracelets made, if you get a couple hundred made, send them down here, because i'm going to talk with my guidence counsler and see if I can't sell some through the school and send you the money.
